Praying for marriage, day 71

My friend Jackie suggested today’s prayer, and I love it. She suggested praying for people who realize their spouse is not their best friend anymore–for the devastation that realization brings and the sadness and heart break. I pray for the relationship, that it can be mended and that true pursuit can begin again. I pray against anger and bitterness but for hope and joy in the promise of love. I pray that both spouses will remember why they married each other in the first place and rekindle and nurture that joy of discovery.
